Reaching every student with Universal Design for Learning
Festival of Inclusive Education: On Demand
Session details & slides
Before we can expect students to engage and excel in learning, they first need to be able to access the learning material. One way to ensure this is to bake accessibility into our teaching practices and materials. In this session, discover Universal Design for Learning, or UDL. Loren will explore the core components of UDL and how you can put these into practice to foster inclusive practices and equity for all.
Loren Swancutt is highly regarded for her innovative work in the areas of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), inclusive curriculum provision, and instructional practices that support students with complex learning profiles. She is the co-founder and National Convenor of the School Inclusion Network for Educators (SINE), co-founder and Board Chair of Inclusive Educators Australia (IEA), a Doctoral candidate at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and a research student member of the Centre for Inclusive Education (C4IE).
